Outfit Post: Mod Lace Dress

Sunday was an epic, epic day for laundry, and I finally got around to washing some thrifted stuff.  This dress was from the Magical Mystery Thrifting Trip from a few weeks ago.  I've been drooling over lacy little dresses on Modcloth since last summer, but since my budget has been a bit tight, I opted not to buy one for full price.  Which, in the end, was a pretty good idea, because this dress was about 20 bucks, in perfect condition, and exactly the sort of thing I was looking for.  There isn't really any shaping to the body save for a gentle A-line, so I used my little red bow belt to cinch it in.  It's been cold and rainy, but I wanted to add a little kick to my week so I wore some tights and knee-high boots for warmth.


It's not the best color on me, but I still love it.  It has just a touch of '60s sensibility without being too literal, and it's very comfortable despite looking pretty sharp.
